Bryce Canyon, I love this place. Everyone knows the Grand Canyon, but funny that even in the States only few know about this stunning place.

Many Regards from Hong Kong

Greetings from Ohio. Thanks for visiting! Bryce is one of my favorite national parks. Have you been to Zion?

Yes, I was there back in December 1997. Your photos inspired me to upload some of my own photos of the Bryce Canyon. The daylight, the red rocks and the snow created a magnificent show of colours. Therefore I said I love this place. And, funny enough not many people know about this magnificent place. Personally, I like it more than the popular Grand Canyon.
